The RI Association of Naturopathic Physicians has submitted a bill to get Naturopathic Doctors licensed in RI! Naturopathic Doctors are recognized as specialists in Prevention and Natural Medicine.

Licensing Naturopathic Doctors would:
~ Ensure that every Naturopathic Doctor in RI has been trained at an accredited school of Naturopathic Medicine to safely treat patients and refer when necessary.
~Allow Naturopathic Doctors in RI to perform and order tests and labs that help diagnose disease and monitor progress.
~Allow Naturopathic Doctors in RI to treat patients according to how they were trained.
~Give Rhode Islanders more options for choosing health care providers who support their health and wellness.
Please help us give this effort a strong start by giving today.

UPDATE May 29, 2014:

We need to get a vote scheduled for our naturopathic licensure bills in both the House and Senate committees. The Senate Health and Human Services Committee wants to wait for approval from the Medical Society, who won't meet with us until next year. We are not waiting. We are not asking for anything egregious. We are looking to become a licensed field of practitioners with education standards enforced, who can diagnose and treat according to our Naturopathic training. If Massachusetts passes this year (it looks good- Go Mass!), we become the only New England state not doing this. 

What you can do - Contact your Local Senator/Reps:   
****If you are a constituent of the committee heads - Josh Miller (Warwick, Cranston) or Donna Nesselbush (Pawtucket, North Providence) on the Senate side or Representative Joe McNamara (Warwick, Cranston) - please give them a call and let them know you want them to  schedule a vote for these bills and support them!****
